Diggs played four full seasons in Detroit before being traded to Seattle five games into the 2019 season. He has been a Seahawk ever since, and played and started in every game since arriving. His 2021 season was his best year in terms of tackling numbers, racking up 66 solo and 28 assisted tackles, both career highs.
He has also racked up a whopping 13 interceptions in just 38 career games as a Seahawk. He only had six total as a Lion. Diggs was the safety that picked off then-Jets quarterback Sam Darnold’s first ever NFL pass and returned it for a touchdown.
The Seahawks also re-signed defensive tackle Al Woods, who is a defensive tackle originally taken in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Saints. This is his third separate stint with the Seahawks.
